By Climbers, For ClimbersMetolius: Exceptional Climbing Equipment By Climbers, For Climbers
Built with a safety-first philosophy, Metolius has been revolutionizing climbing gear for over 35 years. Back in the 1980s, climbing equipment was very different than today: it was largely un-tested, uncomfortable, inadequate, or unavailable. Many solved this problem by making their own equipment, including Doug Philips. Doug realized early on that there was massive room for improvement in nearly every aspect of his gear, and in the early 1980s he began experimenting with new designs in his garage. His innovative new harnesses and hardware were such a game-changer in terms of safety, comfort, and functionality, that Doug quickly became unable to meet demand from the local climbers in his community. His small project soon grew into a full-blown company, which he named Metolius after a river by his house.
To this day, Metolius remains a game-changer. With that same drive to innovate and improve, Metolius constantly strives to create the strongest, safest, most bombproof gear in the world. At every opportunity they try to exceed the established safety standards while providing the highest level of performance by exhaustively testing and re-testing in the lab and out in the real world. The result is that every Metolius climbing nut, rope, cam, step, sling, harness, bag, backpack, grip, quickdraw, carabiner, tool, ascender, shelter, glove, and more is of the absolute highest quality and safety. You can place your trust in Metolius knowing you're climbing with one of the very best.
